Weekend Planner

Memorial Day weekend 2014

What We're Doing:
  • We can't decide! There's talk of a quick road trip somewhere or just staying home and not doing much. Both options sound nice so we'll see what happens.
Other Happenings:

  • Check out your local pool
  • Invite friends and/or family over for a backyard BBQ. Break out a bounce house (if you have one) or get the kids a Bug Catching set to help them catch fireflies after dark.
  • Make s'mores or root beer floats
  • Check out drive in movie theaters in your area and give your children a fun experience from the past. Don't have one near you? Create your own in your backyard! We've done it once at daycare and the kids loved it (read more here)! Bring a TV outside, set up chairs, blankets, pillows, etc. Make snacks (or order a pizza) to bring to your personal drive in.

Happenings in Des Moines, Iowa:

  • All of the local pools open this weekend, as does Adventure Bay at Adventureland. Check out our Tour of Wading Pools for some great (and completely free!) options
  • Head to a movie at Flix Brewhouse for a movie on this rainy weekend that's predicted
  • CelebrAsian Festival
  • Historic Baseball Game at Living History Farms
  • High Trestle Trail Sunday Fundy Ride. If riding a bike isn't your thing, hop, skip, jump, walk, or jog the High Trestle Trail bridge (Madrid, Ia) for some awesome views!
